    As much I hate waiting, this is a logical conclusion.

    The logical argument against this would be that Disney will SURELY want to sell EPIX-branded merch with the actual title of the film... And doing such a thing would make it impossible for the title not to leak beforehand.

    I'm almost starting to think they genuinely haven't settled on a title yet...

    we're on the bubble in terms of time to organize that stuff. the sale of merchandise at Celebration is not going to make or break LF.. but if i was attending then i would have quite a few republic credits set aside of ep IX branded stuff.

    it has occurred to me that dropping the title in twitter like they have done the last couple of years wouldn't get a completely positive response right now. there are posters out there that would use the opportunity to scream about Star Wars being killed by RJ etc.
    it may have crossed LF & Disney's minds to skip releasing the title until celebration to attempt to minimize the negativity.

    i'm just spit-balling to be honest.. i think the title should be out by now. i've no idea what they are all up to lol.

    Do they really have to though? Just put a giant IX logo on a t-shirt. Boom done.

    If they want to sell merch at SWC next month, then they have to produce this stuff months prior. So if they sell merch with the actual title, then they have the title since the beginning of this year.

    But as I've said, what if they just have Star Wars Episode IX stuff made without the title in them? They have loads of posters that they can put on shirts and not have the title on them.

    I think that Disney understands one thing above others about the fans. We will keep talking and dispersing information and driving discussion of the upcoming films. We will even do this when there is little to no news. I mean there are a whole host of shows on youtube, with linked twitter accounts and so on that bring up rumors, talk casting and speculation daily. This keeps the STAR WARS BRAND going. It serves as focus group (they get for free), advertising (again for free), and PR (you get the idea).

    This launched the early success of the Disney SW era. Now that there are a few films out there particularly one that upset some fans and one that suffered financially they are being careful with what they let get leaked. Because even the smallest tidbits of real news are shaken together with our speculations, dire predictions, fan hopes and whatever else. Holding off on the title, or details one builds suspense with drives conversations like these and rumors. Eventually, they will break the flood gates and give us a real glimpse and then the hype train or anti-hype trains and such will begin in earnest.

    No they didn't want George's take on trying to justify the PT by making a big deal of the micro world in the ST.

    As someone who wants them and will be at Celebration I can say we would be totally pissed off. Likely wouldn't end up purchasing. I have mentioned how much a nightmare the store is at Celebration and this would make it worse. It is also saying they expect that people will buy 2 shirts that are basically the same. One saying Star Wars Episode IX and one saying Stars Wars "Real Title". Also if that is the case why not just start selling Star Wars Episode IX shirts now?

    I do expect they will announce a title before Celebration. When they do, instead of them just telling us the title, I would like for them to reveal a full and provocative poster with the title. I think that would be really fun!

    Another Disney event (shardholder meeting) passes, not even a hint it's coming soon. I'd put good money on Celebration now. No one will care if it leaks on the day of the IX panel when the merch drops. Endgame was a known title for Avengers within the leaker circles for ages. However some of the more credible leakers made references to the fact that there was more than one title for avengers. Hence, the speculation for ages.

    If we get a "leak" of a t-shirt on the day of the IX panel, nothing will change the hype of millions of people that have no idea these spoiler/leak sites exist.

    I haven't been in this thread in a while but, judging by recent posts, I'm seeing that people are begining to rule out the word force not being in nines's title do to it being used in TFA. I've always been ok with it however I still wouldn't mind something more original and unexpected.

    nobody on there buying that leak as far as i can see. 'ripping it a new one' would be a better way of describing it actually lol.

    i don't hate the title actually, but i don't think that's a credible leak.
